deny things have been supercharged. floods, hurricane sandy, droughts, extreme chill. whether it's a cyclical thing where we'll turn this around or we're on a one-way path remains to be seen. >> we've seen extreme heat and cold and hurricanes sweeping through new york, which i experienced. it was dramatic when it happened. it caused a lot of damage. the critics against this say, look, this has gone on for centuries and millenniums. always freakish periods of weather. no different now. what do you say to that? >> i think you are better off looking -- >> i think lee goldberg may have frozen there it was so cold. i think he's iced up. you can't hear him. you can barely hear me. we got lee back. we thought you had frozen to death. no. you are frozen to death. unfortunately we have lost lee goldberg. sorry about that. president obama is making the fight against extreme weather part of his second term agenda. joining me now is editor and chief and an executive director of the sierra club. welcome to you both. when i last spoke to you about this, pretty fiery debate about it and you were op

up background checks. do you realize background checks wouldn't have done anything for sandy hook. do you realize background checks wouldn't have done anything for virginia tech. they didn't do anything for jared lee loughner. and it's not because the law failed. it's because people who are supposed to follow the law failed. and piers, i put this question to you again. what good are laws if people don't follow them? >> right. so you still maintain that we just have to put more and more guns out there and america will be safer. >> i don't maintain anything. you can put words into my mouth all you want to. >> do you believe that? >> piers, let me tell you something. >> do you believe more guns would lead to less gun crime? >> let me -- let me answer you. i am never, ever going to do anything that is going to somehow limit someone's ability to protect themselves. and speaking as someone who's actually had to deal with this, let me tell you something, piers, i've been in this situation, where i've had to protect myself. i have two children. i've had my life threatened. i've had my childre

shooting at sandy hook. the president changed the rules on gun with the stroke of his pen. signing 23 executive actions he says will strengthen background checks and expand safety programs in schools. the president is also calling for action in increasingly gridlocked congress. >> the most important changes we can make depend on congressional action. ask your member of congress if they support universal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands. ask them if they support renewing a ban on military-style assault weapons and high capacity magazines. ask them what is more important, doing whatever it takes to get a a grade from the gun lobby that funds their campaigns, or giving parents some peace of mind when they drop their child off for first grade? >> joining me now is richard blumenthal of connecticut. he wants to target ammunition sales and require background checks on anyone who buys bullets. your reaction as to president obama's very bold and ambitious plans today for new gun legislation. >> it is a sweeping set of proposals. and what is so encouraging about it is i

created by an automatic weapon and weapon we saw at aurora or sandy hook that can kill 100 people in a minute. what is the difference? >> wait a second. first of all, you're making our case. permitted. in other words, this year they're going to permit. next year, they may not permit. >> there are 50 or more gun control rules which do not permit americans to use certain types of weaponry already. so that permission, decision has already been taken more than 50 times. >> so if your primary concern is saving lives, you have to look at pistols because pistols are the primary killers and they're the primary killers in big cities, all of which have gun control laws. none of which work. >> the preferred weapon of mass shooters, deranged young men, has been five deranged young men using ar-15s. why do they use them? because they're easy to use and they create the most mass shootings in a short period of time. i see no difference in the ability to commit mass murder between an automatic weapon which is banned and you agree with that ban, and an ar-15, which is shoot 100 people dead or 20 childr

think that may have happened in sandy hook. he only had to reload twice to get 100 rounds off. if he had to reload nine times, he wouldn't have killed as many kids. that's the reality, is that we need to do all those other things, but if you get the 100-round, 30-round clips off the streets, the next time somebody walked into one of these schools, there's going to be less carnage, and that's a tradeoff that every hunter in connecticut, i think, is going to be willing to make when they look at it. >> i completely agree. good for you, senator. keep up the fight. it will be down to people like you showing the political courage that many in washington have lacked over this to drive it through and make it happen. i wish you luck with it. >> thanks a lot, piers. >> my next guest doesn't think america has a gun problem at all. larry elder, and author of "dear father dear son." no gun problem in america? >> thank you for having me on. this book i have written is by far the most important book i have ever written because it's the centrality of fathers. the face of gun violence in this coun

economy. >> i've never seen the president as emotionally moved as i saw him after sandy hook. this has been an issue we carried on my show. when i saw what he said the other day and the executive order, i was impressed by the boldness and courage of the leadership and then there was the reality check. within minutes people popping up on both sides saying he can't get through an assault weapon ban. today a young teenage boy killed five people with an assault weapon. the weekend we had people injured at gun shows with guns. america is a country riddled with gun violence. do you think the president has the political clout and the personal drive to try and pursue an assault weapons ban if it looks like he can't? >> i think he's made that clear. he is going to pursue it. >> can he succeed? >> let''s see. we announced a couple of days ago an organization called organizing for action. that's the obama for america community, grass roots organizers who wanted to come together to continue working for change. they're going to be critical in this effort of getting key pieces of the agenda done

. >> i've never seen the president quite as emotionally moved as i saw him after sandy hook and this is an issue that we have carried a lot on my show but when i saw what he said the other day and the proposals put forward, executive order and with congress, i was so impressed by the boldness and the courage of the leadership and then the reality check. within minutes, people popping up on both sides saying, well, of course, he can't through an assault weapons ban. >> we'll see. >> today, a young teenage boy killed five people with an assault weapon. the weekend, we had people injured at gun shows with guns. the irony not lost on anybody on gun appreciation day. america is a country riddled with gun violence. do you think the president has the political clout and the personal drive to try and pursue an assault weapons ban if it looks like he can't? >> i think he's made that clear. he is going to pursue it and -- >> can he succeed? >> well, you know, let's see. i think integral to succeeding in washington is building the american people's voice from the inside. we announced a new organizati

particularly following sandy hook, of course, it must be everyone who is at a college or school's nightmare that they hear gunfire. did you hear the gunfire going off? do you know how many people actually shotguns? because there are various reports that it was one shooter, two shooters and so on. >> i personally did not hear the gunshots. i did hear some gunshots later as i was moving away from the scene. they were off in the distance. but as far as the gunshots go, i actually did not hear them. i was told by another student who had saw me, he indicated that i had arrived at about approximately 1, 1 1/2 minutes after the shooting had occurred. so i actually did not hear it. the latest report was saying that there were three wounded and one of those three being the suspected shooter. >> right. we believe there's a fourth who had a heart attack. the final question just briefly, if you could. my understanding is you have armed police specifically employed at the school and also civilian security, but they're not armed, is that correct? >> i think some of them are. they do have a poli
